📃 Description and information of the Tropical Fjord Kayak trip in Brazil
The Costa Verde, just south of Rio de Janeiro, has all the ingredients for an amazing Sea Kayak Trip in Brazil. National Geographic Traveler has called this area ‘a sea kayaker’s dream’ and, with its deserted sandy beaches, tropical islands, Rainforest covered hills and traditional Caiçara fishing villages, it’s easy to see why!
This Kayak Trip in Brazil is considered a Classic trip by Brazilian paddlers. The trip starts in the picturesque colonial town of Paraty and spends 2 nights in the car-free paradisiacal Mamangua Tropical Fjord. Mamangua, only accessible by sea or walking trail, is fast becoming the number one paddling destination in Brazil.
As a three day trip in protected bays this tour is ideal for paddlers with some experience or for active people wanting to try a multi-day sea kayak trip for the first time. We use a support boat so you paddle as much or as little as you like.
Highlights of this lodge-based trip include the best beaches on Brazil’s Green Coast; the outstanding views from the 425m Sugarloaf Peak in Mamanguá tropical fjord; and paddling the extensive mangrove at the back of Mamangua.
